Hello AMSAT members,
On around July 30th to around Augest 6th we are going to be working the
satellites from Fripp Island South Carolina, EM92 and also will be
activating IOTA NA-110 (Fripp Island) on HF 40-10 meters using a FT-857D
and either a Buddipole or End fed dipole. As for our satellite work we are
working all available satellites SSB/FM, the gear consists of a Arrow
antenna and a IC-821. Note that we will be working the satellites and HF
casually but will try to get it on air as much as possible. The operators
will be Either me or my Dad N8XQM behind the mic. Will try to post updates
here either on the BB or my Twitter on how the operations are going. Fripp
Island is a small island near the border of Georgia close to Savanna, it is
a gated community noted for its nice vacation spot. Hope to hear you from
Fripp Island and hope to have fun down here.
